Another great episode – always filling, never momentary! I’m looking forward to checking these out – all are new to me. I’ve got to disagree on one point – I love Basquiat’s work. Although, I’ve grown up with a lot of outsider art which I think Basquiat leans toward. Regardless of how you feel about Warhol’s art, I think the man was brilliant. His greatest piece of art was himself. I think he knew it was all a con. He came from advertising and named his studio the Factory. He saw that art was becoming more commercial and also heavily tied to advertising. I think he saw then what Banksy sees now - “The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.” (Tom, I echo exactly everything you are saying! Basquiat is one of my favorite artists as well as early Warhol before the sh*t really got deep at the Factory. - ADRiAN)

Awesome podcast as always!

Incidentally, the Kriss Kross bit in the beginning of the episode had me wondering how the former members have been doing since the 90s so I googled them. Turns out that Chris Kelly, one of the duo, died just a week ago.

(RE: Ja'at, you're right about Kelly. That's why we included that bit at the beginning. We recorded this episode just days before he died. Sad. Thanks for listening in and posting this comment, sir!)
